It's no secret -- the world is obsessed with AMC's Mad Men. Especially since all 4 seasons have been available on Netflix streaming during its hiatus, millions of adoring fans are anxiously awaiting the two hour premiere of season five, scheduled for this Sunday, March 25, at 9 PM.
If you aren't throwing your own themed party, I'd suggest you head to Beacon Hill, where Scollay Square restaurant is hosting an elaborate viewing party, complete with costumed wait staff, 60's cocktails, a costume contest, and, of course, three giant flat-screen TVs to watch the premiere.
Choose from cocktails such as Old Fashion, Brandy Alexander, and Tom Collins, and indulge in Mad Men inspired passed hors d'oeuvres: Pete's pan fried onion dip with homemade potato chips; FDDT kebobs made with full Don Draper treatment-rib eye, potato and portabella kebobs; Sterling's bacon and bleu cheese wedge salad, and Beth's "Grin and Barrett" gazpacho. Seriously, who can resist that list?
To top it off, the top three costumes will recieve $100, $50 and $25 gift certificates, respectively, to any member of the Legendary Restaurant Group. I'd say it's the perfect excuse to go peruse Banana Republic's new collection. Am I right?
Your $30 ticket includes two cocktail tickets and unlimited hors d'oeuvres, plus tax and gratity for the evening. A full dinner menu, inspired by the Mad Men era, will be available to guests.
Can't make it out this Sunday? Don't be too upset. Scollay Square will be showing episodes and offering it's 1960's themed menu every Sunday going forward, so be sure to check that out at some point during the season.
